Soon enough, there's a date for the Earth's population to pass over 8 billion

The United Nations experts have set a date after which they believe the population of our planet will pass by a frightening 8 billion mark, which will take place very soon on November 15, and now, according to scientists, our planet is estimated to have a population of 7,967 billion.

Let us note that since the twentieth century, the number of people on Earth has begun to grow frighteningly fast. If just over 200 years ago — in 1804 — the planet was inhabited by only 1 billion men and women, by 1927 it had doubled. Between the second and third billion people, it was only 33 years ago.

And then things got worse -- from 3 billion to 4 billion of the world's population leaped in just 14 years between 1960 and 1974 -- the fifth billion was achieved by 11 July 1987, the sixth by 12 October 1999 and the seventh by 31 October 2011 -- and scientists estimate that if we continue to produce at the same rate, by the middle of this century the planet will have to bear the weight of 10 billion.

Meanwhile, China is creating a giant green hydrogen plant with a solar farm size of 900 football fields.
